International Business Studies BA (Hons)

This course is delivered by the AACSB accredited Business School, an accreditation which places us within the top institutions globally for business degrees. Less than 5% of business schools worldwide have attained this hallmark of excellence which recognises a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.

With over 35 years of success, our Business Studies course is an ideal stepping stone for anyone wanting to work in any industry, anywhere in the world. Students on this course love how incredibly flexible it is, as you don’t have to pick your specialism until the end of your second year of study. You'll apply to our Business Studies degree and if you wish, choose to specialise later on.

The International Business Studies pathway will help you to develop cultural sensitivity, as well as a critical understanding of the challenges of working and managing internationally. You'll examine different concepts of international business etiquette and protocol, culturally distinct management styles, ethical dilemmas in international management and the impact of convergence.

You'll apply to Business Studies (N100) and then in your second year, you can choose to carry on with the broad Business Studies route or choose one of our specialist pathways which include:

  • Business Studies with Economics
  • Business Studies with Enterprise
  • Business Studies with Finance
  • Business Studies with Human Resource Management
  • Business Studies with Marketing
  • Business Studies with Operations & Project Management
  • International Business Studies.

BA (Hons) Business Studies has a dual Award with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) which means when you complete your studies you’ll have your Business Studies qualification and a CMI leadership and management qualification. You will also receive a complimentary CMI membership for the duration of your qualification with BU.
